Does ‘Don’t spoil us, we’ll spoil you’ send the right message to people visiting Byron Shire?

Chair of Council’s Tourism Advisory Committee, Councillor Basil Cameron, said the proposed new community identity is out on public exhibition until January 23 and Council is keen to find out what residents and the wider business community thinks about the concept.

At Echonetdaily we would also like to hear what you think about the proposal. Email us and we will publish your responses.

Cr Cameron urged residents and business owners to have a look at the community identity on Council’s website www.byron.nsw.gov.au/PublicExhibition.

Visitors will also be invited to tell Council what they think of the proposal.

All submissions will be collated and reported to the first Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting in February 2012 and then to Council.
